A Ramsgate dad who was stabbed to death on Father's Day has been described as a "devoted" family man who doted on his three children. Michael Ward, 40, known as Archie, was a former Ramsgate Football Club player who died from a single stab wound to his thigh last June. Today (January 19), a jury at Canterbury Crown Court found his ex-girlfriend's new partner guilty of his manslaughter. At the time of his death, Mr Ward's friends paid tribute to the popular football fan.
There are calls for the leader of Thanet council to resign as up to half of his own party is set to oppose a vital housing plan tonight (January 18). Thanet District Council will be holding a key vote on its local plan, which sets out how and where jobs, homes and new businesses will be delivered up until 2031. But UKIP leader Chris Wells could be facing defeat due to abandoned attempts to re-open Manston Airport and rising the threshold for the number of homes to be built.
Thanet District Council will tonight hold a key vote on jobs, homes and new businesses that will be delivered in the next decade. The local plan, which sets out the council's strategy for future development, proposes 17,140 homes to be built in Thanet by 2031. Though 9,000 homes are already built or have planning permission, the local plan states 2,500 of those should be on the former Manston Airport site along with businesses.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
